Mortgage Cover Helps You to Avoid Becoming a Statistic

Sep 8, 2008
The Council of Mortgage Lenders recently stated that in 2008 there could be as many as 45,000 homeowners being repossessed by their mortgage lenders. Up to June there had already been a staggering 18,900 homeowners having lost their homes through the mortgage lender repossessing. The reasons for repossession are many with accident sickness and unemployment common ones. If you want to avoid this happening to you then thought should be given as to how you would pay your mortgage if you lost your income. A loss of income can come about due to being made redundant or if you cannot work after falling sick or suffering an accident. Mortgage cover could help you to continue meeting the demands of your mortgage in cases such as these.

When you take into account the fact that just one missed payment on the mortgage means that you would have to catch up and a couple means a downward spiral into mortgage arrears, protection is essential. If you are unable to show that you have means to catch up on the arrears and pay the mortgage repayments at the same time then the lender will take you to court.

If you were offered mortgage cover when you took out the loan you could have declined it due to the high cost that is associated with the cover that high street lenders charge. However there is an alternative, you can choose to take out mortgage protection at anytime throughout your mortgage. By getting a quote from an independent payment protection provider you can get cheap premiums based on age, the amount of cover needed and the level.

You can take out mortgage payment protection for just unemployment or just incapacity. However you can also choose to cover accident sickness and unemployment together. As the cover is age based the younger you are when taking it out the cheaper the premiums are. This means that age based protection is now affordable for even younger first time home buyers with tight budgets.

Mortgage cover taken with independent providers would begin to provide you with an income after a certain length of time of being unemployed or of being incapacitated. Usually there is a deferment period of around 30 days to 90 days before you are able to put in a claim. Some providers would then backdate the payment to the first date of your becoming unemployed or incapacitated. All payment protection only pays out so many payments and the cease. Providers usually offer protection that would provide you with a tax-free sum for a period of either 12 monthly payments or 24. You do have to read the terms and conditions set out in the policy as this is where you are able to find out when cover begins and ends. It will also tell you about exclusions which are to be found in all payment insurance policies. Some providers add in just the bare few while others can add in many. Providing you check these against your circumstances you will have cover that can be relied upon if you need it.
